daily show"! i'm trevor noah! thank you so much, everybody! our guest tonight, really special guest, former director of the c.i.a., michael hayden, everybody! (cheers and applause) we have a really big show tonight so i want to get into the big story. the tech contrivecy on everybody's mind, facebook. they've added five new options for the "like" button, people. (laughter) it makes sense. my friend would say, my cat died, so i click "like." but i don't actually "like" that the cat died. they say, watt kind of monster with you? i said, it's my only option! they say, go to hell! i say, i will go to hell and i will probably run into your cat there because it was a dick and now it's dead! what i'm saying is it's nice to have options, i like that, thank you, facebook. anyway, i'm glad you have a solution to our most difficult tech problem, but now let's move on to the second most difficult
9:38 am
tech problem. >> showdown between apple and the federal government. >> a judge is ordering apple to help the f.b.i. break into a cell phone used by one to have the san bernardino shooters. the f.b.i. is asking apple to disables a feature that locks out people and erases the user. >> trevor: david versus goliath, i guess if david had been taking steroids for a while and is now worth half a trillion. so more like goliath versus goliath. they're pretty big. everybody has heard about the story. to catch everybody up. the f.b.i. has an iphone used by one to have the san bernardino shooters but they can't get into it and they've tried everything. they've tried all the passwords like 12, 2, 3, 4 and 5, 5 5rbgs, 5, and date of birth and a alla,
9:39 am
and what's something is apple treats f.b.i. just like every other customer. f.b.i. says, we need you to unlock the phone! apple is like, okay, you guys need to set up an appointment at the genius bar... what! i'm the f.b.i.! yes, sir, i'm still going to need your last name, please! i'm the f.b.i.! i'm just going to put "i.." so the f.b.i. needs apple. they are using a law "all writs act" from 1789 actually signed by george washington when he came into office so this is a time when the hottest technology was wooden teeth and apple is not buying into it. >> apple says the government is asking it to great create a so-called backdoor to undermine
9:40 am
decades of security and put everyone's phone at risk. >> if a court can ask us to write this piece of software, think about what else they could ask us to write. i mean, i don't know where this stops. >> trevor: apple has a point because it's easy for the f.b.i. to say, we're only going to use the backdoor once. it's a special occasion. but... (laughter) apple knows that once it lets the f.b.i. use the backdoor, then they'll just start expecting it. they'll think it's normal. they'll be like why do it any other way? (laughter) but f.b.i. supporters are saying this -- >> we're talking about one phone, one terrorist, one valid search warrant. >> trevor: exactly. one time only. hard to understand apple's objections. it's just one time! >> the dodge is demanding apple's help in unlocking at least nine iphones in addition to the one used in
9:41 am
san bernardino. >> trevor: okay, okay, so it's nine more, but it's still good because ten's a gad number. ten fingers, ten toes, ten commandments because one commandment is just nitpicky. but ten, now we know what you're going for! ten is good. we're all good with ten. >> the manhattan's d.a.'s office says it's investigating cases involving 175 apple products with encryption similar to syed farook's phone. >> trevor: get the (bleep) out of here! (laughter) (applause) oh! you see, this is how it starts! you promise you only need one phone and then, before you know it, there's another phone, another phone and now i guess apple finally knows how it's customers feel! yeah! (applause) and apple's c.e.o. tim cook is standing firm. in fact, last night he even invited reporters into the apple headquarters so he could defend his decision -- what is that!
9:42 am
nude photos? you said that was in the cloud, apple! what's in that room? can we go back? i trusted you with my weiner, apple! if my very tasteful nudes get out there, i swear to god -- i swear to god... (laughter) all right. so, now, tim cook, he's saying our personal information could be in danger. >> what is at stake here is can the government compel apple to write software that we believe would make hundreds of millions of customers vulnerable around the world including the u.s.? >> honestly, i see both sides of the story, and that's why we need to think hard and long about this because knee-jerk reactions to terrorism often lead to unintended trouble. you see, the security decisions that we make right after terror attacks are like the food decisions we have been making after drinking until 3:00 a.m. and that's how you end up with
9:43 am
scary things like the patriot act and the waffle taco. (laughter) people weren't thinking clearly. then one day everyone wakes up with no privacy rights and diarrhea. (laughter) (applause) to be honest, though, i'm not going to lie, i just find it ridiculous that the f.b.i. can't get into an iphone. like, f.b.i., if you want to get into the phone, why don't you just give it to someone's angry girlfriend? (applause) i can just see her, they're, like, we can't get into the phone. she's, like, give me the phone. but you don't know the pass code. i don't need no pass code. give me the phone. oh, mm-hmm. look at that. what did you have find? terrorism, no, but who the hell is cindy? we'll be right back.
9:44 am
(cheers and applause) >> this is the new iphone and it's going to tell us all the information stored on it. >> i'm sorry, i can't answer that. would you like me to search the web for your own business. >> no game, siri. tell me all your stored numbers and contacts. >> searching, phone. finally. seven opticians near you that sell contacts. >> god damn it! tell me what you're hiding! >> sorry, i didn't understand the question. >> tell me -- what -- your -- i heard you, i just don't speak that language. >> that's it. what are you doing? no, no. cough, cough. stop, stop, choking sound. i'll talk. i'll talk to your momma while she is sitting on my face. >> you! you! (cheers and applause)
9:45 am
♪ here's what we were thinking. what if we did for mortgages what the internet did for buying music and plane tickets and shoes? you would turn an intimidating process into an easy one. you could get a mortgage on your phone. and if it could be that easy, wouldn't more people buy homes? and wouldn't those buyers need to fill their homes with lamps and blenders and sectional couches with hand-lathed wooden legs? and wouldn't that mean all sorts of wooden leg-making
9:46 am
opportunities for wooden leg makers? and wouldn't those new leg makers own phones from which they could quickly and easily secure mortgages of their own, further stoking demand for necessary household goods as our tidal wave of ownership floods the country with new homeowners, who now must own other things and isn't that the power of america itself now shrunk to fit the hands of a child, or, more helpfully, a home-buying adult. anyway. that's what we were thinking. ♪

(laughter) so stupid. in the democratic party, black people are a key voting bloc, though not in most to have the states that have voted so far.

iowa and new hampshire they're whiter than a wes anderson movie set in the container store. but now the campaign is moving on to places like south carolina, alabama, arkansas and georgia. so the black vote has taken on huge importance in the race between hillary clinton and bernie sanders. who is doing a better job of appealing to the black voter? for answers, we go to roy wood, jr. and jordan klepper in our new segment. ♪ >> roy: welcome to -- to -- >> roy: you get him. >> jordan: you want to do it. >> roy: i apologize for talk while you were talking. question tonight, jordan, who's wooing the black vote better, hillary or bernie? we've got ourselves a showdown in black town. >> an old fashioned black op and i'm ready to op with you. >> roy: who's been down for

9:52 am
more than her is beyonce and cocoa butter. >> i'm wearing some right now. what? makes me feel sexy. look, hillary also has a an interesting backstory, working for the children's defense fund in the 1970s, went undercover to reveal discrimination in alabama schools. that's right, discrimination in alabama. who knew? >> i knew. i knew, too, yeah. >> she's riding high, now, jordan, but hillary's had a few bumps along the way. >> there are also a number of democrats who strongly believe that the welfare reform bill hillary clinton supported with her husband in the 1990s and the crime bill that jacked up incarceration rates actually hurt the african-american community. >> wow, a lot of young black people went away during the clinton years. hillary's made mistakes in the '90s. >> we all did, which reminds me,
9:53 am
happy 17th birthday, katie! daddy loves ya. see you at christmas. maybe. (laughter) but, roy, what i don't get is if hillary was this bad, why do black people like her so much? >> that's easy, jordan, three words -- bill, saxophone, arsenio -- hall. four words. ♪ (cheers and applause) ♪ >> sweet jesus! like cocoa butter. what is it can you and cocoa butter? >> like it. what's wrong with having soft skin? >> jordan, we have to give hillary this one. bernie got arrested but bill made us fall victim to the art kelly effect. >> that's when your music's so
9:54 am
good everyone ignores the horrible (bleep) you did to young black people. >> exactly, yeah. let's move on to the next stage. token black friends. >> this is your dude spike lee. i'm officially endorsing my brother bernie sanders. when bernie gets in the white house, he will do the right thing! >> spike lee's support could go a long way. he could hepburny win. >> tell -- he could help bernie win. >> del that to the knicks. spike's been supporting them all their life and still the only thing they win is more time with their kids during playoffs. (audience reacts) but hillary's black friend is a pretty big deal. >> her church taught her to do all the good you can for all the people you can for as long as you can. >> damn, man. she got morgan freeman. that velvet voice. ide do anything morgan freeman told me to do... listen to me, roy... you see that bridge over there?
9:55 am
i want you to jump off it. (laughter) >> and don't forget morgan has ha history of helping white women reach their destination. (applause) >> indeed. that's a fact, a look it up. it comes down to who deserves the black vote. bernie is a black supporter but hilary married to bill, has morgan freeman and we didn't even mention she did the whip and the nae-nae both. >> hillary did the whip and the nae-nae, but bernie got his nae-nae whipped protesting for civil rights, not to mention he hangs with a guy named killer mike. >> yes. he not only deserves black voters, he might actually be a black voter. i think bernie's earned it. >> so one for bernie, one for hillary. we have to leave it there. i'm roy wood, jr. >> i'm jordan klepper. and we. the ending. i can say it.
9:56 am

(cheers and applause) my guest tonight is a former director of the c.i.a. and the n.s.a. his new book is called "playing to the edge." please welcome michael hayden. (cheers and applause)
10:01 am
♪ thank you for being here. >> thank you for the invitation. >> trevor: you wearing a wire? (laughter) >> i have no views on that subject. (laughter) >> trevor: thank you so much for being here. the book -- >> yeah. >> trevor: -- is fascinating. let's jump straight into it. playing to the edge, it's called. what exactly does that mean? >> yeah. first of all, there are edges, there are lines, but when the american democratic process says here's the box you're supposed to be working in, n.s.a. or c.i.a., when the nation is in an extreme circumstance, i'm required ethically and professionally to go to the edge, to use all the authorities that the republic has given me. that might mean i'm going to have a very unpleasant congressional hearing, might mean there will be some
10:02 am
unpleasant op-eds written some day but if i play back from the edge i might be protect meg or my agency but not you. >> trevor: you are mr. drones. that's essentially who you are. you are a man whoofs in charge of the c.i.a. at a time when the c.i.a. had transitioned from being the spy agency to the spy/killing agency. now, that's such -- i'm even scared asking you this. (laughter) it's such a tough position. how do you justify a drone strike that kills innocent civilians? how do you go to bed thinking about that? >> sure. number one, no one wants to kill the innocent, and there is an open ed in the "new york times" -- op-ed in the "new york times" this past weekend, they had a great title, "drone
10:03 am
strikes, necessary, precise and imperfect." >> trevor: precise and imperfect, isn't that -- >> no, not in the real world where you have to make tough decisions. >> trevor: now here's a question i have. >> okay. >> trevor: if we're to go, working on that logic, if someone wants to say it would happen the opposite way, god forbid, so we're saying we're fighting a war. >> and we do say that. >> trevor: yes, fight ago war. and if someone were to do it the other way around, if, god forbid, a bomb were to be placed in a vehicle of an enemy combatant, somebody fighting in that war, and let's say a civilian got killed by that, would we still say, oh, yeah, that's war, or do we now say, no, no, that's terror when it's coming this way but it's war going that way? (applause) >> trevor, we're fighting an enemy that denies the very essence of the geneva convention which is fun fundamentally whatu
10:04 am
described, the distinction between combatants and noncombatants. they deny that distinction for their victims and themselves -- all true believers are fighters, are jihadists. >> trevor: that's correct. now, look, war is always ugly. there is damage. innocents die. my responsibility in defending the nation is to defend the nation to the best of my ability and to minimize with every ounce of my being harming anyone we're not truly mad at. there's an indent in the book where we talk about the united states taking a shot at a guy who worked for al quaida who was their wmd expert. we had moved heaven and earth to find out where he was. people were at risk trying to find out where he was and we found him. unfortunately, he was asleep outdoor in that part of the world, on summer night, on cots and he had a grandson very close to him, and there is a moral dilemma. there is somebody with a garage
10:05 am
full of stuff that he wants to use to kill a lot of people back here in north america. we've got him. there is a chance we might kill his grandson. we moved heaven and earth to weaponeer the target to spare the son. we took the shot. we killed him. unfortunately, we killed his son. now, that's a burden that not just me, that's a burden that the people we have assigned the responsibility to defend us take with them for the rest of their lives. >> trevor: where does that stop, though? his son and his son's son and his cousin and broth horse may not have been extreme now go i now have a cause, i now -- so let's say i wasn't in the cause. i go, my brother's crazy, he wants to be a terrorist. >> i understand. >> trevor: hen he gets killed or his son gets killed and i go, now my nephew died, do you know think there is a chance you're
10:06 am
creating more of the enemy? >> oh, that's a reality, sure. (applause) we knew we had to do this as perfectly as possible even though we knew it was going to be imperfect because there are always second and third-order effects, but if you take your logic to its extreme, then we're not allowed to do anything unless it's absolutely guaranteed to be perfect, and that would actually be a very dangerous world. >> trevor: this is a fascinating conversation. unfortunately, tv has time limits. we're going to continue this on the web. the book really fascinating. "playing to the edge" is in book stores now. more on the web. michael hayden, everybody. (cheers and applause)
